It's one of a series of patches for adaptive to MTD device.

MTD device is not block device. To write to flash device on MTD, erase
must to be done before. However, pstore/blk just set datalen as 0 when
remove, which is not enough for mtd device. That's why this patch here,
to support special jobs when removing pstore/blk record.

+erase
+~~~~~
+
+It's generic erase API for pstore/blk, which is requested by non-block device.
+It will be called while pstore record is removing. It's required only when the
+device has special removing jobs. For example, MTD device tries to erase block.
+
+Normally zero should be returned, otherwise it indicates an error.
